Chapter 6. Working with Special Content ... > Adding a Sidebar or a Pull Quote

Adding a Sidebar or a Pull Quote

Sidebars and pull quotes are useful features that add interest to a design and break up the sea of text on a page while drawing attention to special pieces of information. Word provides a variety of predesigned text boxes that you can use for sidebars and pull quotes.

Insert a Predesigned Text Box

Switch to Print Layout view if you aren’t already in that view.

On the Insert tab, click the Text Box button, and, in the gallery that appears, click the text-box design you like.

Select any sample text in the text box, and paste or type your replacement text.

Click the outer boundary of the text box, and drag it to the location you want.

Use any of the tools on the Text Box Tools Format tab to modify the text box itself, or use the formatting tools on the Home tab to modify the text.

Click outside the text box to resume working on the main content of your document.
